Fix You
=======
by Coldplay
album X&Y
transcribed by Oliver Juhas (lemmon@pobox.sk)

[Intro]
------
Eb      |Gm  Gm/Bb   |Cm      |Bb(/D)    |  


[Verse 1]
-------
         Eb                    Gm       Gm/Bb   Cm      Bb(/D)  etc.
When you try your best but you don't succeeeeeeeeeeeed
When you get what you want but not what you need
When you feel so tired but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

When the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone but it goes to waste
could it be worse?


[Chorus]
-------
Ab         Eb   Bb 
    Lights will guide you home
Ab      Eb Bb 
    and i--gnite your bones
Ab        Eb   Bb
    And I will try to fix you


[Verse 2]
(same as Verse1):
------------------------
High up above or down below
when you too in love to let it go
If you never try you'll never know
Just what your worth


[Chorus]
-------
Lights will guide you home
and ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you


[Solo]
(repeate twice, then go to Verse3):

[Verse 3]
-------
Eb                   Ab
    Tears streaming     down your face
Eb                          Bb
    When you lose something you cannot replace
Cm                   Ab                    Eb        Bb 
    Tears streaming     down your face and IIIIIIIIIIIIII

Tears streaming down your face
I promise you I will learn from my mistakes
Tears stream down your face and I


[Chorus]
-------
Ab         Eb   Bb
    Lights will guide you home
Ab      Eb Bb
    And i--gnite your bones
Ab        Eb   Bb             Eb        
    And I will try to fix you


=====================================================================
EXPLANATION:
------------
Gm/Bb   - Gm chord with Bb as bass tone
Bb(/D)  - you can play Bb major chord with D bass (but its up to you)
|       - bar separator, anyway listen to the song for correct timing
In solo:
4/12    - slide from 4th fret to 12th
e       - eight note
=====================================================================
Its simple and beautiful song. I like it the most from X&Y album.

You can play solo on the H string only, but I think this is 
closer to original and its fuller this way.

So tune up and play. Go falzeto singing - if you can :)

...Any correction? Contact me on lemmon@pobox.sk

For all Coldplay and guitar fans (ah, if I had a piano too) out there...
(Sory for my english - I am Slovak.)
